Useful - but some LINKS DO NOT OPEN !
The WATCHTOWER links for years 1930 and 1941 are defunct and need redoing as they fail to open. If any one can fix this please do.
All other links, so far seem to work ok as far as I can tell. It would have been most practical to lable these links, as finding items is a real nightmare. NOT GOOD.
Also the Watchtowers in the 1939-50 period were coloured covers not black and white. I know this as im a former WT collector. I like scans to be as orriginal as possible.
The Studies in the Scriptures have MANY, MANY different editions with date and text changes throughout. These copies serve as general reading only, but text changes are notorius throughout older editions of the studies - primarily with date setting. VOL's 2, 3 and 7 were the worst culprits for this.
The text changes can be as subtle, as one word could change the whole context of the paragraph. ( example > A 1913 edition would say > "BEFORE 1914 the world will end"; whilst the 1915 edition says - "AFTER 1914 the world will end". Such changes are MAJOR in their doctrine. God's witness in stone - the great pyramid lengths, have been altered.)

Yearbooks and Watchtowers
This a great resource for those that want access to Watchtower books. It contains scans from the yearbooks starting with the first issue in 1927 to 1959 and the watchtowers from the first issue(1919reprint) to 1949. Making available all issues that where not included on the Watchtower Library. Also the Studies in the Scriptures are here but only in text form not as scans. (scans of all 7 volumes are available elsewhere on the Internet Archive and Google books)
